I was around several acquaintances when two of them, talking, suddenly began yelling at each other. When this happens...what do you think, feel or do?

Probably the only logical thing to do at that point would be to yell at each of them to STFU.

If they are two friends of mine, I try to intervene and calm them down. If they are strangers, I run like the wind. lol

I have intervened before with two friends in reality, they would have never solved the issue if I hadn't. Now we are all still good friends.

Would you really feel like doing that?

No. That was an attempt at humor.

I would calmly try to bring them back to reason. If that didn't work, I might leave and tell them I'll see them later.

Yes? Why. Shouldn't they leave? It's unfair if they are ruining it for everyone.

Two people yelling at each other sounds to me like a rather emotional exchange. You're right that it would be more reasonable for them to leave.

However, I pick my battles, and unless I'm someplace special, like the Louvre, it doesn't seem worth it. In my experience, trying to reason will people who are yelling at each other will be a waste of my energy.

Oh I don't like to be around arguments & confrontation. I was recently stuck in a similar situation where I tried to intervene however the two would still not stop. I just simply walked away for a few until they settled down.

Ignore it for the most part and mind my own business. Let them go at it unless it's about to turn very violent and someone is gonna get hurt.

I've found out most of the time when you intervene you end up being the bad guy. I leave it alone unless it directly involves me.
